49ers Defense

49ers Defense Shuts down Rams

The 49ers are Legit, So is that Defense

Jared Goff threw for 78 yards, George Kittle had 103 receiving yards. That’s pretty much all you need to know about the 49ers vs Rams.

It’s time for the rest of the world to recognize the 49ers as a powerhouse. And it’s all thanks to the revamped defense. Jimmy Garoppolo has a decent game against the Rams defense. Not a terrible game, not a great game, but a decent game. And that’s all the 49ers need from Garoppolo to manage the game and limit the mistakes.

The handsome one did have an interception and a fumble, but the 49ers defense stood tall against the potential former NFC champions.

49ers Defense stuffed Rams three times on fourth down

Not once, not twice, but three times the 49ers forced a turnover on downs on fourth and short. The first one coming on the goal line. This first stand by the 49ers defense seemed to be the one that broke the back and it came in the second quarter of the game. The Rams offense went for negative yards in the third quarter.

Coming into today’s matchup the Rams offense was ranked sixth in points and fifth in yards. They were held to only seven points and 165 yards. I think it’s safe to say if you have fantasy players you may need to temper your expectations when playing against the 49ers defense.

Again, Garoppolo did play a decent game. And one of his best passes came when the Rams got pressure on the quarterback.

Not only did Garoppolo evade the sack, but turn a potential negative play into an eight-yard positive play to set up the third and short.

But he wasn’t the only one making great plays. After the 49ers force the turnover on downs at their own goal line, Garoppolo went to old faithful for the first down.

This team is 5-0, this team is legit, and this defense has 49er fans

If it ain’t football news, is it worth reading?
